    Mca! Have You Used? Experience?

    Gareth, I spoke with Josh at the time and told him what use the car would get and he supplied the springs to suit the valving he had set. I have always run stiffer front springs and was/am happy with the 6kg (335lb) fronts. As I said in a previous post I changed the rears from 4 to 5kg (280) as I feel the car is better with only about 50 lbs difference front to rear. I am sure MCA would advise you on the rate they felt would suit your valving but in the end would probably fit what you wanted. Geoff
  2. Hi Kent, Not sure if this helps, but here are a couple of pics of my (your) one with a tape alongside to maybe compare with what Gav finds. Geoff
  3. The assembly came out of a 71 model but it was a while ago and my 'old timers' brain can't recall what type of gearbox was in there. Mine looks like a reverse of yours Roger with the spline bit at the gearbox end. Geoff
  4. FOR SALE - R180 3.9 open K series diff with bolt in half shafts, moustache bar and tailshaft. This stuff has been sitting in my garage for quite a few years now and it is time to make some space. The assembly is as I pulled it out of a 240 I bought back in 2000 (for $2500!!). The moustache bar has had the original rubber bushes removed and I haven't seen a tailshaft like this one (it was a track car). Looking for $750 or thereabouts. * Located south of Sydney near Jannali Geoff

    The Build 73 240Z

    Yes, I have a Willwood 1" master cylinder with standard 260Z booster. I previously ran the standard master cylinder with the Toyota Hilux brakes and had no problems and good pedal, however when I fitted the SW kit I figured I would change the master cylinder at the same time. You might want to fit the brakes first and see what you think of the pedal. My Willwood came from Rocket Industries at Huntingwood. If you do change to one you have to make a small adjustment to the push rod length in the booster. The attached link gives instructions on what is required. http://forums.hybridz.org/topic/102754-a-one-inch-diameter-brake-master-cylinder-for-the-s30-z-cars/ Geoff

    The Build 73 240Z

    I checked the DBA site the rotors are 296mm, with decent pads (Hawk) I find the brakes more than enough for the track. But then I don't have a V8 auto!

    Hi, Approx 295mm, they are DBA 5040IS. Geoff

    The Build 73 240Z

    I have the SW setup with DBA rotors and R33 calipers and everything bolted up fine, I can't say if the calipers are GTS-T or not. Naybe you can tell from the pics?
  9. Bump I know I would probably get some interest if I advertised these for free, but that can't happen, so the next best thing I can do is a drop to $875! I will even throw in the boxes they came in:)
  10. FOR SALE - 4 - 15 x 7" 0 offset 4 x 114.3 Rota Grid Classic wheels. These wheels have not been on the road, they had tyres fitted and then removed and are in as new condition. $950 obo plus freight or pick up in Sydney.
  11. Anyone with Foxtel, if it hasn't already been mentioned tonight on Discovery Turbo 7.30 and 9.30pm, JDM Legends show featuring work on a 240.

    I have MCA Reds on my early 260 and in my opinion they are excellent, a great local product. Josh was very easy to deal with and after inquiring what use the car would get (road/track) he valved them accordingly, They came with 4kg front and 6kg rear springs but I later changed the rears for 5kg so as not to have such a large gap between front and rear and I believe for my driving it feels better for it.

    Project Race-Z

    I just had my car engineered at Consulmotive, 77 Anderson rd, Mortdale and John was very good to deal with. He is busy and doesn't always answer his phone straight away it is usually best to leave a message on his mobile 0412 253973 and he will call you back.
  14. Yes, I had a two wheeled night, Paris-Roubaix then the Moto3 started and through to the Motogp, no sleeping once that started! Great ride by Peter Sagan, but sad news for the young Belgian who passed away after he fell on the second cobbled section.
